biden at a rally in charlotte. >> this is deadly earnest. how they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. >> in the richest country in the history of the world this obama economy has crushed the middle class. >> reporter: romney's ad team quickly seized on the remarks churning out a web video. at an event in denver rubio piled on. >> those happen to be the words of the distinguished vice president of the united states mr. joe biden. no, don't boo. he's the best thing we got going, guys. don't boo. because in a moment of clarity, in a brief moment of clarity he just told us what we already knew. >> reporter: romney's aides say they expect the president to call on the gop nominee to offer specifics. >> we're going to limit deductions. >> reporter: but in an interview with the denver tv station, romney began to do just that. >> well, you could do something for instance as an option you could say everybody's going to get up to a $17,000 deduction. and you can use your charitable deduction or home mortgage deduction or o
, one thing romney is likely to bring up tonight. a gaffe by vice president joe biden, where he said the middle class has been buried for the last four years. >> reporter: that's right. vice president biden tried to clean up those remarks later in the day, saying he was referring to the middle-class buried by tax policies put in by republicans. ones that romney and ryan want to go back to. but criticism of what's happened to the middle-class over the last four years is one that ryan and romney jumped on. >> matthew dowd, what is a win for each candidate tonight? >> mitt romney has to show up and be confident, compassionate and connect with the audience. but really, he has to put the president on the defensive. he needs to turn this race into a referendum on the president. >> and the president? >> i think the president's all about his mannerisms and his style at this point. i think he can't come across as irritable. he can't come across as impatient. he has to act that he wants to be there, maybe with a lot of smyt smiles. he can't come off out of touch. >> do you think the moderator,

they move around to get license. i talked with joe biden is going to be an -- involved very shortly in announcing programs that are going to help teachers help kids of military families better adapt in schools. i think there have been tangible demonstrations by this administration with regard to veterans and that is starting to be recognized. i want to say one thing about veterans. and that is we have seen governor felon -- romney we are going to have the strongest defense every and -- at the same time he's calling for 20% reduction in spending that will affect veteran's programs. at some point, people are going to see the have voodoo of economics of that and that includes veterans. >> [inaudible] i'd like to ask about the reputation of democrats on the -- [inaudible] served thirty years in the making sends [inaudible] tried to pub l democratic leadership counsel to the right on the defense to make them so strong we have now riched the point what the survey showed. i'm wondering about the romney administration how the president [inaudible] showed he's fumbling on defense and they pi
in the military. he is out there for his own agenda. vice-president biden has one son that is patriotic to our country. host: how about a final thought from you in a broad sense about campaign 2012 that foreign policy would plaly. guest: governor romney is a patriotic american and wants to contribute. i think he is having a problem in the campaign. foreign policy is becoming a bigger issue because of these terrible events in the middle east. both candidates want to sanction china because of the threat of war. i think president obama has the advantage going into the debate. the present's record is very solid -- the president's record is very solid. mitt romney has to develop some well considered ideas -- here's what i would do on the big issues. how we can stop iran from becoming a nuclear weapons power. how do we bring peace to the palestinians? that is a debate we should have. it should not be partisan. i am looking for to the debates. host: nicholas burns, former u.s. ambassador and now teaching at the harvard. thank you for joining us this morning. guest: thank you very much. host: we will
there for his own agenda. like vice-president biden, he has at least one son who was patriotic to our country. i don't see a man like that out for the people's interests. host: how about a final thought from you, nicholas burns? in a broad sense, the campaign and foreign policy? guest: what i wanted to come i would not in tune the motives of the governor romney -- i would not impugn the motives of governor romney i am running for president. however, he has having a problem. a foreign policy is becoming a much bigger issue than expected, because of these events in the middle east. i think that president obama has the natural evanish going into the debates. -- i think president obama hasei the debates. let's see what happens in the debates. but governor romney's challenge is to get beyond slogans and one-liners that you see on the campaign trail and develop ideas to explain, here is what i would do differently on the big issues -- how can we get our troops out of afghanistan, how can we stop iraq from becoming a nuclear weapons power, how can -- how can we stop iran from becoming a nuclear weapons
gore or joe biden have charitable contributions of $350 per year. i would not think you could argue that mitt romney has gotten p too muchuffy press. i think his interview on "six"the minutes was pretty good. they ask what your idea of leadership was in that as a nice generic question. i need spirit -- i think there needs to be substantive questions as well. host: i want to make sure that the folks see this a -- in "the washington post" last wemple reported thisric -- guest: there is a danger in a candidate talking about the media bias. the media of will turn around and say you are losing. this is a lot of what we have seen in the last couple of weeks. there was an associated press report that said romney is struggling to exert his influence in the poll. you don't want to get across the idea of losing but this is what happens. the media runs with a poll they are taking and they treat the race like it is over. we are in september. that's what i don't like. people should let this election process conclude before they say is so host: over. next up is silver spring, maryland, go ahead.
. it is my understanding, for example that in 2008, the one vice presidential debate between biden and pailin drew more interest than other debates. i guess because people were wondering what kailyn was going to do. and i mentioned the one in 1998 between bentsen and quayle. there are other cases of dramatic moments as well. we should definitely pay attention to the vice- presidential debate as well. host: robert in queens, new york. republican line, good morning. caller: if the mainstream media were to cover this in a normal fashion like they should, do you think people would pay attention? there are a lot of people but do not know this exists. there were only 45 seconds of the transcript from what i understand. i just like to know how you feel the election would be assuming the mainstream media were to cover things like this. it is definitely not on any front page of any paper today and i believe it is front-page news. host: and just for some context talking about this obama video, it says it was billed as a bombshell. guest: some republicans might say this is the from the answer to the 47%
in washington as well as protection against china. katzenberg attended a lunch with biden and top chinese officials. after that, dreamworks has a jv with the son of china's president. going on to our number four on the list is jim simons. he is the founder of renaissance technologies. and he is the richest of the democratic dee nonors with a ne worth of $11 billion. education is a big issue for the democrats. math education and reform of public education, big issue for jim simons, who i'm sure will be a big voice for democrats. remember, president obama's change of position on gay marriage this summer, shortly after that, he got a big check from a guy named jon stryker, architect in chicago, big supporter of gay rights, spending more than $240 million over the years. going to our number two, very little known about this man. irwin jacobs, the co-founder of qualcomm. he's retired from qualcomm, but qualcomm remains a big lobbyer in washington on lots of issues, telecome regulation, taxes, copyright law. when you look at the industries that support obama, you've got finance, health care, yo
